Canada: Google Nexus One and BlackBerry Curve 3G coming to Mobilicity
The HTC-made Nexus One may not be sold directly by Google anymore, but that hardly means it’s been discontinued. In fact, in the US it’s now the ‘official Android dev phone’ and if you’re an Android developer you can order one (or many) through your developer account – whenever they will be back in stock.
In the rest of the world, Vodafone still sells them in a few markets and you can also find Nexus Ones in South Korea.
And soon in Canada as well, since Mobilicity have announced that they will be selling the Google phone for $549.99 – that’s an unsubsidized, no-contract price, obviously. This is the first Android smartphone that Mobilicity will be carrying. They offer unlimited voice and data for $45/month and unlimited data, unlimited global text, unlimited talk and unlimited North American long-distance for $65/month – interesting-sounding offers for sure.
The Nexus One, as you probably know by now, has a 3.7″ touchscreen, is powered by a 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, comes with Android 2.2 Froyo , an illuminated trackball, and so much more.
The Curve 3G is currently out of stock, but they will probably begin appearing in stock soon. Spec highlights include BlackBerry OS 5 (upgradeable to OS 6, apparently), a 2.4″ 240×320 display, WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth, trackpad and a 2 megapixel camera.
